    I've talked with a few of my flat mates about which wristbands/tickets they're getting and none of them have bought any yet, however I'm seeing that lots of events are selling out so I'm wondering what to do. Should I just go ahead and buy a SU one or wait and pay at the door?

    I'm not that fussed about sticking with them every night as freshers is an opportunity to meet as many people as possible, but I obviously don't want to turn up on my own. The only thing is that I don't drink and I'm not much of a party-goer, I'd rather go out to have fun than go and watch other people get drunk (which, granted, is why freshers exists) and the main events like Icebreaker and Freshers Zoo don't appeal to me for that reason.

    Basically all suggestions are welcome, I know most of you will be busy packing so it'd be doubly appreciated

    I'm in the same situation as you. I have talked to some of my flat mates about which wristbands to buy and they said just buy tickets on the door for the events you want to go but then I'm afraid they will sell out before hand. Also I'm not a drinker either so I'm not 100% keen on going out and partying every night.

    i would say just buy tickets on the door - especially if you arent much of a drinker, there will be plenty of events to go to so dont worry about them selling out you will still go to some!!

    Exactly, lots of people have said that wristbands are only really worth getting if you go to 9 or more of the events... and tbh like yourself I'm pretty unlikely to do that. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see though there'll probably be more than just the two of us who will want to stay in!

    Hey everyone,

    My sister is actually in a situation opposite to you. She wants to go out during freshers but she's ended up in a halls apartment where nobody wants to go out. The whole situation sucks but I was hoping that she might be able to attach on as a straggler to another halls floor?

    Let me know what you think...
